Cisco Senior Full Stack Engineer - SaaS - Cloud Security in San Francisco, California

What You'll Do

Using the latest cloud services and technologies, you'll build tools, automations, and services that make it easier to develop and deploy features to our customers. We are passionate about the core platform, and our mission is to craft the systems and tools that enable our teams to work more quickly and optimally. We cover the full stack, so you can start the day fixing a Javascript bug, work on the API over lunch, and investigate database performance issues before heading home. Or, if you like, take a few days to focus on delivering a small feature that our tens of thousands of customers have been asking for and measuring exactly how often it's being used. This team does it all, so you'll never be bored, and you'll constantly be learning new technologies.

Who You'll Work With

You will join a fast-moving, hardworking Engineering team where new features are delivered to customers multiple times a day. We apply our startup culture to solve the problems of a multi-billion-dollar enterprise business. We have a diverse set of skills, so you'll learn and grow every single day.

Who You Are

You are a Software Engineer that enjoys wearing many hats, a self-starter that's willing to jump headfirst into the codebase and start improving it immediately. This is a true generalist full stack role, so if you have tried a few different web stacks and have your favorites, that's a good sign. Or, if you've got solid middle-tier experience and you're a fast learner, this would be a phenomenal opportunity to branch out. You are passionate about the "developer experience" and finding ways to remove friction from the development workflow. You’re happy working in a continuous delivery environment, and reaching out across teams to solve problems. You are comfortable working in Javascript, as well as working with CI/CD environments and AWS in general.

Our minimum requirements for this role:

  • Experience designing, implementing, and supporting a large-scale customer-facing web property or service.
  • Experience in designing, developing and monitoring SaaS applications that operate at scale and are highly available.
  • Experience working with public cloud infrastructures like AWS, GCP, Azure etc. Experience with EC2, S3, CloudFront, Lambda and Datastores like DynamoDB, RDS is highly desirable.
  • Experience with infrastructure provisioning tools like Terraform, CloudFormation or Serverless etc. is highly desirable.
  • Demonstrable PHP, Python, Java, C++, Golang or JavaScript skills
  • Experience in monitoring SaaS applications 24/7.
  • Experience in performance measurement, profiling and optimization of SaaS applications.
  • Experience with CI/CD systems (Jenkins, Concourse or AWS Codebuild/Deploy)
  • Experience with secure coding standard methodologies and remediation.
  • Experience working in an Agile environment.
  • Experience building (and supporting) web applications, microservices, and multi-datacenter applications.
  • In-depth knowledge of object-oriented concepts, programming, and systems design.
  • Understanding of various design patterns and Service-Oriented Architecture.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • Excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills
  • Experience in mentoring and guiding junior engineers.

We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here’s how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re "old" (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do - you can’t put us in a box!

But "Digital Transformation" is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool.
